Tonight’s “Evening for Women” is Cancelled

Due to the continued inclement weather, tonight’s ”Evening for Women” program has been cancelled.

Annual “Coats for Kids” Collection Continues This Weekend – November 16-17!

Each year in November, St. John’s participates in the Coats for Kids drive by Anton’s Cleaners, a Boston-wide coat collection campaign for children, teens, adults and babies. Anton’s cleans all the donated coats and coordinates their distribution to those in need.  Please bring gently used, warm winter coats of all sizes for children, teens, adults and babies in good quality with no rips, tears, broken zippers or permanent stains – coats you would give to a friend (click the flyer for more details) – to the Rectory garage after Mass this weekend, November 16-17.
